The Faculty of Political and Social Sciences attaches a great deal of importance to 'internationalization'. This covers a wide array of concepts: research, education, student and staff exchange, ... .
Each year, a number of our students spend a study period abroad, and vice versa, each year we welcome incoming foreign students at our Faculty. Foreign students who want to pursue part of their studies at our Faculty can rely on personal advice and guidance throughout their stay. At the Faculty level we have an Academic Coordinator and an Administrative Coordinator for Internationalization responsible for this; in each of the 3 Departments students can also rely on an Erasmus coordinator.
Incoming students can choose English taught courses throughout the 3 Departments. On top of this, it is also possible to choose Dutch taught courses even though we can hardly expect foreign students to master academic Dutch... The professors responsible for the Dutch taught courses provide an alternative self-study/research task for these students, and offer personal tutoring. Also, even in Dutch taught courses, international guest lecturers are invited, thus providing ample opportunities to (partially) offer English content.
Foreign students are welcome for one semester or for a full academic year. Also, it is possible to choose courses organized in another Faculty (such as Applied Economic Sciences, Law, Arts & Humanities) within certain limits. It is advised that students wishing to do so contact the Administrative Coordinator beforehand!
